Have we ever as a group stopped to think about what’s at the opposite end of an all-inclusive fat friendly society. I’ll tell you what is. Skinny shaming. Jamie King knows. She’s a victim and very upset. The world falls into two groups moving forward from now on. Especially in regards to fashion. There are those that love watching fat women frolic in Fruit of the Loom underwear. And those that don’t. And if you’re in the category that doesn’t enjoy the full-figured frame, your slice of fat shame pie is waiting at the table.
At New York Fashion Week on Saturday, actress Jaime King responded to the recent ban on size zero models by French fashion companies. “I think it would be radically unfair to say if you’re a size zero, then you can’t work, just like it’s unfair to say that if you’re a size 16, you can’t work,” King, 32 told the New York Post. Last week, French fashion companies Kering and LVMH, who own labels like Dior, Givenchy and Gucci, committed themselves to banning models below French size 34 — which corresponds to a US size 0 — according to Reuters.
The term “chubby chaser” is an oxymoron. No one who is incessantly active comes close to being obese. Unless you’re a linebacker. But if that’s the case you also shouldn’t own a vagina. There’s no line of work for women that requires them to be in competition with the weight of a compact car. Just because humans possess the technology to reinforce a runway to hold more weight doesn’t mean we should. Body positivity goes both ways. I support Jamie’s sentiments. Don’t ban models just because they’re a size zero. Even though the bigger issue here is how is it possible to have a pant size equaling nothing. Because if your waistline made it all the way down to zero, you need to explain how you’re not legally categorized as the undead.
